Hey guys, I'm glad to join this forum I intend on doing some awesome stuff to my newly bought old 98 ranger xlt. She's a Standard Cab; Flareside; 2.5I; 5 speed manual and get this....I paid $150 for her and shes certainly a rescue I'm glad I stepped into. She has a few issues but nothing I can't fix, she's got 257,000 miles on her and I know thats a lot, but hopefully I can post some pictures soon. So far I've replaced the belt, fluids, filters, and all 194 bulbs. I have some awesome plans like replacing that ugly 60/40 seat with some buckets and full-length center console out of a 00 Explorer. The best part about this truck is that it's awesome on gas, paints in decent shape and still shines (black). The issues I've had so far are rough idle (which I'm sure is part of the next problem) and second I'm showing a bad voltage regulator on a fairly new alternator (not installed by myself). A few small issues include the third brake light leaking, I don't have the valance trim or a rear bumper, and the corner of the bed has a chunk taken out of it, and the tailgate is busted all to hell but still works. I got some small tires that just won't do for this 2wd baja lol, I'm eventually gonna get some 31s on the stock alloys. Anyways thanks for reading my post, you guys have a good day

60/40 seats may be ugly, but they serve a good purpose when your partner is sitting next to you....
Oh and welcome!
